Toddlers


Dear Toddler Families,

Throughout the month of November, we will be teaching our toddlers life skills, manners, and giving! Since November is the month of Thanksgiving, our curriculum will focus on being thankful and we will learn what it means to be grateful and thankful to our friends!

For art this month an our celebration of Thanksgiving, we will be making turkey handprints. In addition to this, we will attempt to continue our celebration by making Pilgrim hats and Native American headbands!

Also this month, we will be doing a lesson on manners for toddlers. It’s never too early to encourage your child to be polite! We will practice saying please and thank you and encourage the use of utensils during meals.

We will be incorporating our colors, numbers 1-10, alphabet, and shapes into most everything we do each day while having fall fun!
